(redirected from combo DVD player)

dual-format player

An optical drive that supports two distinct formats. For example, a DVD drive that reads DVD+R and DVD-R media can be considered a dual-format player. In 2007, LG was the first to solve the dilemma of competing high-definition movie formats by introducing the Super Blu Blu-ray/HD DVD dual-format HD player. See Blu-ray.
